Groundwater management position statement

The Murray–Darling Basin Authority’s (MDBA) position statement for managing groundwater in the Murray–Darling Basin outlines the expectations of the MDBA in regard to sustainable management of groundwater resources.

The MDBA expects, in instances where localised risks are not managed or mitigated by water resource plans, it will work with Basin state governments to implement more localised responses. The MDBA will ensure that significant threats to groundwater resources are carefully monitored and mitigated through mechanisms such as policy agreements.
